Chapter 1: Observers outside of time



In the afternoon, Yin Shen made an appointment with a friend and had tea in a refreshment restaurant.

Yin Shen stretched out his hand from the second floor and called out the man who came in: “Here!”

A man in the lobby saw him immediately and walked up with a smile.

It was Cuntou, he was an webnovel writer and a classmate of Yin Shen’s university.
A kind of person who knows a little bit about everything, but not in-depth.
He was one of the best people for having small talk with.

Yin Shen likes to chat with him.
He liked to talk about science and science fiction, mythology and history, astronomy and geography, military and civil news, etc.

Their talks are not very strict, or pure nonsense, but had a very relaxing feel.

This time, the two talked about mythology from history and mythology from legendary novels mixed with western rumors

Yin Shen suddenly said, “Recently, when I fall asleep in the middle of the night, I always feel that my soul suddenly leaves my body.”

“Then all night, I watch my own body until I wake.”

“It’s kind of like…”

“Western soul projection, as well as the yin **** in your novels.”

“You said, what’s the situation?”

Cuntou did not laugh at Yin Shen’s words which were full of absurdity, instead he thought about it for a while and organized his thoughts.

“The first thing that needs to be understood is that if a person really has a soul, what is the composition of a person’s soul?”

“Is it matter or energy?”

Yin Shen thought for a while and said uncertainly.

“It doesn’t seem to be either.”

Cuntou then asked, “So what about memory and consciousness? Is it in the soul or still in the brain?”

Yin Shen said with confirmation: “It’s in the soul.”

“I feel my body is like an anchor point, anchoring my soul to this point.”

“I can obviously get out with just one struggle, but I feel that when I get out, something terrible will happen.”

“This feeling fear came so unexpectedly, that I didn’t dare to go do it again.”

Yin Shen suddenly laughed: “Do you think I will awaken some superpowers or start to cultivating to immortality?”

Cuntou shook his head: “For the time being, it doesn’t matter if what you are saying is true or not, if a person really has a soul, and it does not belong to matter and energy, even memory and consciousness can be stored in it, then it is not a superpower or something.”

“What kind of soul projection, what kind of yin **** travels, those are just the existences that the ancient people imagined and compared with to what we know now, it is like the difference between the sky and the earth.”

“Even the gods in historical mythology and the immortals in Taoist legends cannot match this kind of existence.”

“Even Pangu, the creator God, Brahma, Kaos, and Asathos, who pioneered the world, have nothing to do with you.”

Yin Shen was stunned on the spot when he heard these words.
He was still talking about human souls just now, so why did he get involved with these creators and the supreme gods among the myths?

“What are you talking about, isn’t it just a human soul?”

“According to what you said, if a person has a soul, he can directly be invincible.”

Xiuxian said seriously: “I didn’t talk nonsense, but had solid evidence.”

“Because the universe is composed of matter, and time is the manifestation of the movement, the continuity of change, and the sequence of matter.”

“If your soul does not belong to matter and energy, and since your consciousness is not based on the brain but the soul.”

“What does this mean?”

“Your soul and this universe are like two non-overlapping planes.
You can transcend outside of this universe, even without being constrained by time.”

“Think about it, isn’t it like this?”

Yin Shen then asked: “Doesn’t that mean that the soul is free from the **** of the body, it would immediately leave the universe?”

“Even the soul can directly transcend the long river of time, travel through space and years, and become an existence floating on the timeline?”

“Doesn’t that mean I can travel to any era, even tampering with history?”

Cuntou man shook his head and said his own thoughts again: “That’s not necessarily true.”

Yin Shen asked: “Why?”

Cuntou: “I just said that the soul and the universe you are talking about are like two non-overlapping planes, two non-overlapping planes, there’s no crossing point linking them at all.”

“You are not related to the universe, so from what angle do you perceive the existence of the universe?”

“You can’t even perceive the universe, so how can you perceive time, and how can you travel further on the timeline?”

Yin Shen suddenly had an answer to the source of unexplained fear.

“So, once the soul leaves the body, it’s like a ship that’s lost its coordinates and direction.
It’s very likely that it will leave the universe and never find its direction back?”

Cuntou nodded: “One possibility is that you still have a connection or anchor with the real universe, with your body still being here”

“In this way, you can observe the universe through this anchor point, and as I said before, become an observer outside the universe and time.”

“If you have a different anchor point at different periods in time, you may even become the same as you said, a shuttle in the timeline.”

At this point, the words of Cuntou became gloomy.

“But there is another possibility.”

“The moment you leave the anchor point of your body, you are thrown into an unknown place outside the universe.”

“There may be another universe, it may be the source of time, or it may be another dimension or unknown that humans cannot imagine.”

“There may be nothing there, just like a prison, but where your soul will be trapped, ten million years, 100 million years.”



The scene fell silent for a moment, and no one spoke for a while.


At this time, Cuntou suddenly laughed, and he picked up the teapot and filled his and Yin Shen cups.

“You have a good idea, quite innovative.”

“My next new book wants to use your setting, maybe it will be popular?”

Cuntou did not take what Yin Shen said seriously, thinking that it was just the usual unrestrained empty what if talks they usually had.

However, Yin Shen was in a complicated mood, and stood up to prepare to leave.

“I’m leaving now!”

“If you write it out, or if you have any new ideas or ideas, remember to tell me and we will discuss them together.”

However, Cuntou stopped him and took out something from his backpack.

“Yin Shen, don’t leave yet.”

“With your issues, I will give you a good thing.”

Yin Shen took the box that Cuntou gave him and opened it.
It was an irregular stone with an exquisite insect pattern on it.

“What is this? A fossil?”

Cuntou : “Ledniche, a kind of trilobite.”

“Although this fossil isn’t worth a lot of money, but thinking about seeing creatures from hundreds of millions of years ago appearing vividly in front of you, it feels like you can’t buy this kind of shock for a lot of money.”

“Take it back and put it at home, imagine and feel the vicissitudes of the ancient earth and these ancient creatures hundreds of millions of years ago!”

Yin Shen thanked the Cuntou Man Xie, walked and looked at the present while holding the gift.

However, just as he was walking to the lobby, an out-of-control car suddenly crashed into the glass door of the hall from the street outside at a speed of more than 231 kmp, crashed into onto Yin Shen with layers of glass shards.

Yin Shen took the fossil in his hand and when he was knocked out like a rag.

In the pool of blood, Yin Shen’s eyes gradually blurred.

   “Who’s driving so badly, to be able to drive all the way from the main road to the lobby of the restaurant.”

Waiting to see clearly, Yin Shen became suddly reviled as he saw the car.


“It turned out to be a Tesla!”
